The Eight issue of the bulletin through ACCESSION towards JUSTICE
The Head of the EU Delegation in Serbia, Mr. Michael Davenport, speaks about Transitional Justice as an integral part of Serbia’s EU accession negotiations. He expresses the EU standpoint with regard to the dealing with the legacy of the armed conflicts and of the systematic violations of human rights committed during the wars in the former Yugoslavia, and the importance of the negotiation process for establishing and accepting the responsibility for the crimes committed. A view of Serbia’s EU accession negotiations as offering a potential springboard for the development and comprehensive application of adequate Transitional Justice mechanisms is offered by Jelena Krstić, the Humanitarian Law Centre’s Outreach Manager.
The column dedicated to the news contains an overview of the most recent events in the field of transitional justice and Serbia’s EU integration process in the period November 2014-January 2015.
